    Just a couple weeks later here. Really close to changing this to a 5. Just a nice, smooth, easy to drink coffee (did 3 Chemex cuppings).

    Got this from Bolt as part of the Providence single-origin box.

    Bolt's description of the combination of rapsberry, peach, jasmine, and caramel suggests an Ethiopian flavor profile. However, the actual tasting experience is quite different, as Chiroso tends to defy expectations. The nose doesn't give you any real hint of what's to come, it's slightly butterscotchy pre-grind.

    This coffee is predominantly caramel-forward, balanced with subtle notes of jasmine and honeysuckle. This blend also features a distinct ripe fruit character, adding depth and complexity to the overall flavor.

    The coffee's acidity is particularly noteworthy, offering a complex and lingering sensation reminiscent of hops and pineapple on the tail end of the palate. The hops are very subtle and more additive than bitter. Overall, this coffee presents a sophisticated and multifaceted taste experience that defies conventional expectations.

    Cupping Method:203F, 15g in, 225 out with Hario v60

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Colombia
Colombian coffees are known for their balanced taste, featuring bright acidity, medium body, and a range of flavors, including fruity notes, caramel sweetness, and nutty undertones. Colombia's worldwide reputation for producing great coffee at scale is well-deserved. Increasingly some of the best microlot specialty roasts are coming from Colombia thanks to their expertise in cultivation and process.
Bean Source Region: Antioquia
Nestled in the Andes Mountains, Antioquian farms benefit from elevations ranging from 1,200 to 1,900 meters above sea level, where the cooler temperatures and unique microclimates contribute to coffee beans with chocolate notes, vibrant acidity, full body, and a delightful combination of fruity and nutty flavors.
